This is the perfect grow bed for your aquaponic system, designed with the gardener in mind. Manufactured from extra think, food grade plastic, the AquaUrban Grow Bed is great for growing indoors or outdoors.
A bell siphon automatically drains your grow bed once the water level reaches a high point, as a pump is continuously moving water into the bed. When the grow bed drains, the siphon breaks and then the grow bed refills with water until the cycle repeats again. This flood/drain action brings nutrients and oxygen into all levels of your grow bed.
Some advantages of Bell Siphons:
With a Flood and Drain setup, the filling and draining is controlled by a timer, which controls your water pump. At intervals you set, (we do 15 minutes on/45 minutes off per hour) the pump will fill the grow bed. When the water level reaches the top of the standpipe, the bed drains. When the timer shuts off the pump, the rest of the water drains out of the grow bed.
